I called this quilt Merry-Go-Round because of the fun colors and the way your eyes move around the quilt. I love both of the colorways! The bold primary colorway has a lot of energy, while the pastel colorway is soft and pretty. Either one would make a wonderful children's quilt, wall hanging, or table topper. (Mine hangs over my cutting table- love it!) Great for the beginner or "quick" quilter- if your piecing isn't perfect and your seams in the centers of the blocks are mismatched, the appliqued circles will cover up any mistakes :) No worries!! Vine border can be machine or hand appliqued. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Basic sewing and/or quilting skills Small amount of machine applique and hand applique

Recommended with this pattern

  • For background- 1 3/4 yards off-white for primary quilt or very light blue for pastel quilt
  • Assorted solids or tiny prints for the blocks, appliqued circles, and outer pieced border- about 7 different colors, fat quarter of each
  • Assorted prints- approximately 8-10 different florals, stripes, etc. (Include 1 or 2 bold prints with a black background for the primary quilt)- 1/4 yard or fat quarter of each

Please visit me at Hi there! I am so grateful for the legacy of creative women who came before me- my mom taught me to sew and cook, my Grandmom taught me to crochet and paint ceramics, and my Grandma Clare taught me all about gardening.... I like to cook and sew and make quilts. I like to paint pretty pictures. I like to browse in cool shops, lurk in interesting museums, and loiter in book stores. I enjoy a good, warm, comforting cup of tea. I do my best thinking while I’m lying awake in bed at 3 a.m. when I’m supposed to be sleeping. I am an artist and illustrator, and I design fabric and quilt & sewing patterns for the quilting industry. I also write and illustrate books featuring creative ideas like quilt patterns, craft projects, and recipes. My blog is called The Art of Home, and it's about being creative every day.... because home is the perfect place to indulge our creative urges… My name is Jacquelynne, and I just like to make stuff. Come along with me, I would love to meet you!
